Password protect it, so that unauthorized users can't access the signal sent by the router.

Under the security settings tab you need to define a passphrase / password key and then select WPA or WPA2 you should then apply the settings and you reconnect using the password

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You should be able to configure which SSID it connects to and then put in the same password as you define on the WRT
